I also am waiting for my DB9 to USB adapter to plug into the computer for logging TPS, RPM and O2 signal. I can hopefully create a comprehensive profile of feedback so I can jet perfectly.

i`ll be watching what you get it jetted at,you are closer to my set-up than dotcoms.......

I have a feeling I need to just spend the money and get some quality fuel, there's a place in Reno that sells different blends. I still have top end pinging.
2 liters Toluene in 4 gallons pretty much stops the pinging in mine,,cheap too.......and i`m using the 11.25-1 JE slug..

I had that happen to two different knobbies , one being a D606, both under 100 miles of hi speed slab. Both were replaced by the online store's warranty. I did have to eat the shipping! The bike used was the xr650l.

Now my electric starter turned my XR600 engine over beautifully but just a smidgeon less than necessary to build charge in the stock CDI and thus allow a spark to cross the spark plug. See the CDI "allows" a spark - it needs though sufficient charge to build a charge.

Thus I had to figure out how to get spark - there was plenty on kick but none on button.

Enter the 650L CDI which when plugged in allows a beautiful spark to develop at 12 volts and thus engine revolutions get taken out of the picture as a determinant of starting.

So mt XR628 is now 12 volt DC powered ignition.

Just last friday I got it all plugged in and the bike fires up beatifullly!

I would estimate that it fires up in about 1/2 of a second - ie almost immediately.
I put XR600 CDI on mine and easy way to get 600 CDI to spark with elec starter is spin starter twice as fast. So how? 24V starting system!

Got my new cdi.
Installed it. The old one didn't look old at all. I guess this will just be an on going issue with these being hit or miss I guess.
Anyways props to the brothers honda in bremerton, Ernie gave me a discount because I found it cheaper on line.
$125 out the door.

Are the wieltronic units any better than the stock? I was thinking with the quality issues of the Honda part how could you go wrong with the Belgium unit?

New "Fathers Day" motorcycle...

I bought a new XR650L today... I paid $6100 OTD

My dealer didn't have one in stock so I'll have to wait a couple days for it... I hope that it will serve me well.

I am curious about this as well. Being relatively remote, I'm thinking of purchasing a backup soon. I'll be back in the US for a short bit in August.

PS. Just found a '94 that has sat completely unused for 5 years. Only 5k miles. I needs a good deal of TLC and has taken 2 or 3 hard spills, but looks like the guts are in really good condition. Hoping we can get it for a good price and fix it up for all our colleagues who work in Sudan and come to Nairobi occasionally.

Replace the counter shaft sprocket with a 650R type and grease the splines with Kluber GL261. Un-plug all the electrical connectors and apply Dielectric grease. Make sure it's got oil in it and ride it....
